These tracks have been carefully mastered and put together to present to you a 4 CD epic journey into sound. Together with the artwork the puzzle lies ahead to find out what...

From 1967 through 1970 my father, composer Harold Shapero, was director of the Brandeis University electronic music studio. The studio was equipped with a Buchla 100 modular synthesizer, which was at the time the state of the art. Though I was not a Brandeis student, but still in high school, my father allowed and encouraged me to work with the Buchla in the studio. I started working there when I was 14 and continued until I was 17. The portrait you see of me with the Buchla was taken (by my...

Live recordings from digital algorhythms. This is generative glitch that walks the far boarders of experimentalism, yet its content is so smooth and delicious. Meandering between the likes of Xenakis and Ikeda, this takes on a journey of its own. And even though this may be the shortest release on Just not Normal, I fell deeply in love with this album; beware as you may too!

In Greek mythology, Ixion and Tantalus were both legendary for their extreme hubris and the dire consequences that befell them as a result. Each was granted an audience with the gods, and betrayed the generosity shown to them. So many tales abound of the transgressions these two figures made against the gods that there is no one story to explain their unique fates. Yet it is precisely these unenviable fates for which they are most remembered. In its most simple form, the tale of Ixion is that...

Mike Metlay's body of work has always included abstract noisescapes, a passion he's enjoyed for nearly three decades. (A recent example is JNN014, The Redundancy Of Suicide by mindSpiral.) Mike's main noisescaping device is "Thing One", the Oberheim Xpander analog modular synthesizer he has been playing for 25 years now. Currently, as for the past 10 years or more, he uses Thing One primarily for self-modulating noise textures that can be manipulated in real time with broad control...

Most of the tracks on Danadax' 3rd EP follow a similar set of rules in their creation. All of the tracks are one takes, most were of a semi-selfgenerated nature. Other tracks are just constant manipulations of a soundfile until it was unrecognizable from its original form. These tracks here are of a minimal atmospheric nature with some tracks closer to noise, but always in an organized form All tracks and artwork Curtis D Cousins (is Danadax)

"Stereoscopic laid is an experiment in sound. What you are hearing are not 'sounds', but in fact are 'images'. The idea behind this album was to generate sound tracks equivalent to stereoscopic images, in which you see a slightly different point of view of the same scene with each eye, creating the illusion of depth. The process was really simple, I chose for each track an image and I generated two similar versions with a minor deviation, similar to the perspectives that both eyes...

MindSpiral is a series of collaborations between Mike Metlay and anyone who doesn’t hang up when he calls.

Of all the remarkable releases from all over the globe this certainly stole my heart with its most weird and live recorded tracks that meander somewhere between the sound of The Orb, Merzbow and Zappa. A remarkable trio indeed to make its appearance in an album notice. AKU is a group of artists that got together in the Smooth Studio in Bandang, Indonesia in Januari 2010. One not often hears music from this island group, but there is most definately a lively experimental scene happening there....

Like Stream69, Kris Cadwell also revisits the JNN-catalog with a successor to his first album ‘Offerings’ (JNN070). Another beauty and indepth look into the sound of a visual artist exploring not in paint or color, but in tone. The diversity of this artist is remarkable; at times this feels very Boards of Canada when he can also change his cloth and create a beautiful deep field of drones and beatfree song. Kris certainly shows his wardrobe and wears it in style. We’re very happen to...

Hailing from Braga, Portugal are Risco Corrosivo and Paranoid Doll. More industrial and more loudness after the delicate experimentalism will sooth your ears when in dire need of release of the chaotic. This very diverse album ranging from lo-fi to noise will certainly peak your interest. A ideia do álbum âDos Caminhos do Velho Mundoâ consiste num roteiro de poesia de Portugal à Rússia, para cada país um poema de um poeta dessa nação. Foi escolhido Portugal -Hilário...

It was only natural the two came together after releases on timetheory and treetrunk. Mystahr provided a 40 minute live improv when mystified in his turn touched his drone-fingers on the material. Par takes (perhaps a series in the making) will take you into the depths of sound and drones.

Cezary Gapik (also know as CEZAR) was born in Czestochowa, Poland in 1963. He started his musical activity in 1980 as an animator of punk rock bands. Soon enough he discovered new sounds which were brought by the punk rock rebellion. Cabaret Voltaire, Public Image Ltd. or other “new wave” bands had an enormous influence on the perception of music by Cezar. Plunging into the fundaments of musical avant-garde (Karlheinz Stockhausen, Morton Feldman, Luc Ferrari, La Monte Young), the appearance...

Joining the ranks of avid Field Recordists is Philippe Faujas from Spain. Making Just not Normal not per say a field recordings netlabel, but since I personally am a big fan of field recordings and feel they go extremely well amidst experimental music Philippe is very much welcomed to the world of JNN. Follow his link to an even bigger world of recorded sounds, but let this release be your guide into the world of this fine French artist living in Spain. He won my heart with his great sounds and...

And here I was thinking that the man we know all too well from his magnificent field recordings (Luis Antero) had taken a side step into a different cloak (Out Level). But upon checking any profiles for writing a little bit to whet your apetiteâs I realize that this is the eleventh release allready! I should rather frown upon myself for not having shared any of his music yet on a previous NTNS radio show. Alas so it is. After his earlier Website Story released on Just not Normal I can truly...

Of Places and Moments is a celebration of the art of field recordings. The tracks to be included utilized recordings from the Sounds Found Project, a repository of user-contributed field recordings. The source recordings were mangled, manipulated, abused and violated, in some cases beyond recognition, to create 18 distinctly different interpretations ranging from minimal drone, to noise, to electronica.

The twelve pieces on this album reflect an ongoing interest in the temporal processes underlying musical creation from two apparently contrasting yet ultimately similar musical contexts. Post-modernist, systems-based pieces for traditional classical ensembles stand side-by-side with more static electronic works. In the former category the obvious reference points might be the work of Steve Reich and other minimalists but in contrast to the extended time-scales operative in such work, the pieces...
